51 Scripture Verses on Health and Healing

Happy Thursday sweet friends! I am often told by very dear and well-meaning people, "I am praying for you" or "I am praying for your health" or "I am praying for your healing". 

ALL of these things are wonderful and I am so grateful and thankful for the time that people pray for me and my health. But I am also asked by those who are closest to me, "I pray for your health everyday, but sometimes I don't know what to pray anymore at this stage of the journey." I have been thinking a lot about how to respond to this recently and wanted to share with y'all 51 healing scriptures that I pray over myself every single morning and throughout the day. 

While this doesn't address everything to pray for and is definitely not a "formula" I do hope and pray that this is a good starting point for you if you are looking for verses on the topic of health and healing in the Bible. These verses bring me such comfort, joy, peace, and strength every single day during this season! I hope it encourages you today!

"Finally, be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the Heavenly realm. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all of this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God."
